2 States is a 2014 Indian romantic comedy film co written and directed by Abhishek Varman based on the 2009 novel 2 States: The Story of My Marriage written by Chetan Bhagat. It is produced by Karan Johar and Sajid Nadiadwala. The film stars Arjun Kapoor and Alia Bhatt in lead roles. The film was released on 18 April 2014

2 States is a happy film (with measured anguish). Romance in cross-cultural or even cross-border situations isn’t new to Bollywood. What makes 2 States work is the simple narrative told humorously. Adapted as it is, from one of author Chetan Bhagat’s best-selling works, the film, just like the book before it, is light-hearted. Chetan’s funny one-liners and life-view are studiously borrowed by the director for his screen outing. And though there is a sense of déjà-vu, for those who have read the book, the movie still manages to charm and surprise.

Krish Malhotra (Arjun) and Ananya Swaminathan(Alia) meet on the IIM Ahmedabad campus. Sparks fly between economic coaching and food poaching. Their tender love, compulsive copulation and kissing chemistry (adeptly portrayed by the young screen lovers) make this couple reason that they could spend a lifetime together. But in India, where tradition and parents are nurtured, couples have to literally marry each other’s families.

Incidentally, for those in an inter-caste marriage, this movie could resonate like your own tale. The playful digs at each other’s cultures, the self-deprecating remarks about one’s family and community are all laugh-out-loud moments. Amrita-Ronit, Revathi-Shiv Subramaniam infuse life into their roles of the Punjabi and Tamil parents. The spitfire Alia and a sober Arjun are also lovable. If you are in a mood for a Bollywood family saga with measured melodrama and the right amount of naach-gaana, visit 2 States.
